Running hot

So I just bought a 2005 CBR600rr and it goes to 255 f easily without really riding. What could be the issue? I’m new to bikes. Bought it from an independent dealer in the middle of no where Kentucky, it only has 5k miles so it should be 100% fine. It has a rebuilt title which I thought was a little suspect but the salesman said not to worry about it (of course). The rear brake is very stiff to press as well as the front break when ingaged is jerky. What should I do?

Check if you actually have any coolant in the radiator.

You are probably way low. And, just because the expansion tank is full thay does not mean the radiator is. To get to the rad cap you will have to take off a fairing and an intake tube on the right hand side. It's pretty easy though.

Worry about the brakes once you get it running right. 255 is way too hot and is probably not accurate, might just be reading air/steam
